OSCD Values Hero: Valerie Anthamatten
When patients consider quality of care, they may think of doctors, nurses and other members of the medical staff. Administrators and support personnel also play a vital role by keeping everything moving smoothly as patients travel through the system, from pre-registration to post-op recovery.
Valerie Anthamatten has managed the business office at OSCD for the last eight years. Her hard work and dedication, built on 14 years of experience in an ambulatory surgery center setting, reflect the mission and values that OSCD shares with its partner Surgical Care Affiliates. As an integral part of our team, Val was chosen as the 2018 OSCD Values Hero.
“I take pride in knowing I can make a difference, even if I’m not physically taking care of a patient,” she said. “I am contributing to their well-being and providing ease with their understanding on the administrative side of their experience, such as registration, insurance benefits, and overall quality of care at OSCD.
“Being a the OSCD Values Hero means that I am working with an amazing, supportive team,” Val explained. “They drive me to do my best and I strive to keep moving forward and grow. It is such an honor to be associated with OSCD teammates and physicians.”
